O it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, go away";
But it’s "Thank you, Mister Sheridan", when the Media begins to pay,

I mean, surely the SSP is looking forward to receiving half of Tommy's winnings in line with party policy on wages.

But, what's this? The SSP's website thinks that the most recent newsworthy story in Scotland concerns school meals and Jamie Oliver.

And if you have a glance here it looks like the comrades are in an unseemly state of disarray.

Meanwhile, Martin Kelly reminds us that it's not over till the old judges confer.

How can the Festival compete with this?

(UPDATE: More comradely fallout here)

Having read the linked sites, I can only say that I love the smell of socialists flaming each other in the morning.

I always thought Jeffrey Archer rightly won first time because the jury thought the Star were scum & that what, if anything, he did was none of their business. 
The same applies to Tommy Sheriden. It is clear that juries (& thus probably the public) are less prurient than the papers.  
The good news for politicians is that they will never be the most despised profession so long as there are journalists around.
